Whether the space in your main bedroom is limited or you are planning to use one of your spare rooms for extra sleeping space when you have guests over, finding ways to maximise your space is vital.
Styling your bed consciously will not only elevate the overall look and feel of the room but also create the illusion of extra space and a feeling of comfort. Courtesy of a collaboration between local furniture brand Block & Chisel and luxury bedding experts Falucca Fine Linen, here are a few trendy ideas to help you make the most of the limited space in your bedroom by styling your bed.
Create An Island
Your bed is the centrepiece of the bedroom. So, it’s important to give this focal point good attention decor-wise. A classically-styled bed will include wooden side tables, good reading lamps, an upholstered headboard and bedend, and a rug to make the space feel complete and to offer extra warmth and comfort.
Even in a carpeted bedroom, a rug helps highlight and define the bed area. Make sure you choose a rug that is large enough so that you can place your bed on top of it and still have a metre or so bordering the bed.
Head To Toe Furnishings
Headboards and bed-ends are an important part of the mix, offering the punctuation necessary to create the island. Your headboard not only has a strong style reference, it is also an essential barrier between you and a cold wall, while your bed-end offers a place to store your scatters or sit when you’re tying your shoelaces. Yes, it’s all about style, but style too must offer functionality to be truly worthy.
It’s In The Details
When it comes to classic styling, you should give your bed as much attention as your bedroom furniture. From the type of inners you require for duvets and pillows, to the fabric of your bed linen, as well as what level of detail you want in the styling of it all.
Go for the highest quality natural bedding you can afford, but keep this simple, building the details with throws and scatters to create the final look.
One bedroom, two different looks. Invest in classically styled furniture pieces and play around with the look and feel by simply changing up your soft furnishings such as scatter cushions, throws and bed linen.
